MGMT's self-titled third LP may be "a confused, confusing album," but it's not without its charms. "Cool Song No. 2" is a brooding psychedelic rumbler that merges Brian Eno exploration with Animal Collective experimentation to pretty excellent results. And that track now has a fantastic video to go with starring none other than Michael K. Williams, famous for such gruff but grounded characters as Omar Little (The Wire) and Chalky White (Boardwalk Empire). In director Isaiah Seret's work above, the man plays "the Plant Hunter," who appears to be tasked with gathering unusual flora with the goal of converting the material into illegal drugs. But the very well-dressed and very violent Williams has his own agenda, and it's quickly clear that he's gone rogue — either for revenge or a good cause.
anyone else have the corrupted file problem?
i really want to watch the optimizer

You know, I actually just now read the Pitchfork review, and I don't think it's terrible. He clearly listened to the album. I guess the thing that gets to me is how many people don't think they're capable of writing another TTP. I swear there's part of me that wishes Ben and Andrew would vomit up an EP of radio gold just to silence the naysayers. I resent the haters for making me feel that way.
Also, once again, I know we have a lot of guests and new members and I want to direct you to our awesome resources in the Internets section.

If you haven't checked out the Feature Article from new mag Electric Beats, it's a must read and can be found in the Your Blood thread. It's my favorite MGMT article date. It's packed with great insight. It also reveals that Astro-Mancy is Ben's fave off of the album
